Fifth Stop: Wrigley Field, Chicago

After a 2-hour drive back to Chicago, take a morning tour of the second-oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball. Although the stadium is criticized for its narrow seats, many say Wrigley is one of the best. Wrigley is home, of course, to the Chicago Cubs and the "called shot," where Babe Ruth once pointed to the outfield and then hit a home run during a World Series game.

$10: Round trip taxi fare since there is limited parking
$31: One mile tour through the stadium
$112: Cubs game. Club Box Infield seat ($92) plus service charge ($16.22) plus processing fee ($4)
$2: Score card
$14: Two beers
$8: The Sloppy Jane -- vegan sandwich filled with tempeh, peppers, onions, molasses, barbecue sauce
$25: Chicago Cubs Game Franchise Fitted Cap

Running Tally: $2,073
